Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (SFDR)

The European Union has launched an ambitious Sustainable Action Plan in order to reorient capital flows towards a more sustainable economy, foster long-termism and manage the increasing importance of sustainability risks.

As part of this plan, SFDR prescribes mandatory disclosures to be made by asset managers and investment funds relating to sustainable investments and sustainability risks, applicable from March 10, 2021.

The following documents provide the entity level information related to sustainability risk policies and adverse sustainability impacts:

Products Disclosure

  • Article 6 - Non-ESG focused financial products
  • Article 8 – Financial products which promote environmental or social characteristics
  • Article 9 – Financial products which have sustainable investment as their objective

The following documents (Article 10) disclose information on the methodologies used to assess, measure and monitor the ESG impact of the sustainable investments selected for all our products that qualify as:
